One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush & Austin Nichols Fight For The Gulf - August 20, 2010

One Tree Hill's Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols have been big time battlers for helping the cause with the Gulf. The oil spill in the Gulf has been an absolute disaster. They are extremely dedicated to the cause and they have been posting heavily on Twitter of any kind of news that is going on while continuing to get the word out on what we can all do to help. It has been great to see people jump behind them with their fight. I really admire them for what all they've done to help raise money and awareness including them traveling to the Gulf themselves.

They have had various deals going on in helping with fundraising efforts. Sophia and Austin have been offering autographed 8x10's to fans who donate $50 to the cause. There has also been a contest going which recently ended where you could donate $28 and be entered for a chance to win a One Tree Hill signed box set. Here are the links to Sophia and Austin's projects:

One Tree Hill supporters have jumped aboard as well. OTHTwitterBugs.com has organized an auction on Ebay for two shirts signed by cast members of One Tree Hill. The first is signed by Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols. The other shirt is signed by Sophia, Austin, James Lafferty, Stephen Colletti, and Kate Voegele. The proceeds of these auctions will go to the charity of Sophia and Austin's choice. The fans of One Tree Hill have always been an awesome, awesome community and support one another's efforts.
